Wiggins is a hero, and seems a really sound bloke too... good to see deserved success going to someone who works hard and gets on with it rather than crying like a girl...
Speaking of tears and girlie behaviour, the whole Hincapie toys/pram thing seems really silly to me. Why should other teams just let him take yellow because he is a nice bloke? I am a nice bloke too but I'm not expecting people to send me free Ringle skewers. It's pro bike racing, working for sponsorship exposure etc, not a testamonial ride! If it mattered so much to Hincapie, he should have put more pain into the last few miles and got the jersey for himself.
I think Nocentini has done fantastic too, plenty of exposure for his sponsors, but it seems like nobody cares and just annuls his efforts. Fair play to him and he wasn't that far back today either.
Contador flew up that hill effortlessly... I feel like death heated up going up steep/long hills on the road bike with a 39/26 gear at 10mph and below. How fast do you reckon Contador was climbing?
And Armstrong deserves praise... the guy is drawing his pension, has been out for 3 years and is still contending, that is pretty amazing.
I think it's all pretty interesting. Bikes are a bit soulless though! Someone needs to ride a steely!
